XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 to cool gtx 470?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys, bear with me, I'm new to water cooling.

I have 2 gtx 470's in SLI right now, and the top one gets pretty hot. I just picked up one of the PNY 465's, and unlocked it to a 470, to go along w/ the my MSI gtx465GE I did the same with. The PNY 465 was $110 from the egg. I was watching ebay (because I'm selling 2 other vid cards), and noticed a guy that had a evga gtx470 w/ WC kit, so I was hoping to get that, but failed because I jumped the gun, and was on my mobile phone. It went for 270 after shipping. If I had bid again to win, I figure I would have paid around $300, so that's my total budget. It looked like a kind of old WC system, but still descent parts. If i won that I was going to sell the PNY i just picked up.

Now I think I'll just keep the PNY, but it's way too f'in hot. I was looking at trying to build a WC kit for around the same price as that auction, minus the $110 of the PNY card, but had no luck. Maybe if I pieced stuff together off ebay. Another thing I was looking at was the XSPC Rasa 750 kits. They look like a great starter kits, and idealy I'd go with the RX360 one, but I'm trying to keep this under $190, w/ the GPU block.

That leaves me with the XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 as my only option, I found a gtx470 block for $60. Do you guys think that should cool my PNY in the top position running in SLI? I'll be keeping the MSI465 GE w/ the "stock" cooler, because I think it looks cool.

If I did that I would probably just set aside the cpu block for now, because I can't imagine the RS240 being good enough to cool an i7, and gtx470. If I did want to upgrade down the road and bring my cpu into the loop, could I just add another Rad, or is that pump not good enough?

Thanks.

the rs240 should cool 1 gpu but nothing else, if you want to do your cpu+2gpu you would need to add a rx360 the pump could handle that
you will have to make sure the 470 block is compatable with your gfx card, Full blocks are normaly for refference gfx cards

Cool thanks, yeah, the PNY card is a reference card, and the gpu block/heatsink i was looking at is the "Swiftech GTX 470 Heatsink & MCW80 Water Block" so that should work as well.

Down the road I was thinking about adding the "Swiftech MCR320-QP Extreme Duty" because it's at microcenter, how does that compare with the rx360 rad?

Pick up the RS240 kit, get two MCW60 or MCS80's of the GPU's, and get a second 240mm rad. I have that, but running my two 570s and my 950.

Sounds good, I'm about to pull the trigger on one from jab-tech, anything else I should get while I'm ordering?

[edit] just ordered one. I was going to get some extra tubing, but I figure I'll just use what the kit comes with for now. I will probably want to switch to black tubing when I add the additional radiator.
